Yet another adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tale of young lovers from rival families, but the presence of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) behind the pen bodes well, along with the wonderfully engaging Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as Juliet and the likes of Damian Lewis, Natascha McElhone and Stellan Skarsgård in supporting roles. Expect a top-notch version that likely may not dazzle or tease us with naughty flashes, but rather remain faithful to the spirit and the letter of the great Bard’s vision. Opens Oct. 11  at Esquire Theatre. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
